Names of the Hijri months

One of the first things to do, when you start teaching about the Islamic Calendar, is to help your child memorize the names of months! And there is no better way to do it than to create flash cards or match the Arabic to the English puzzles.

Arabic names of Islamic Calendar

Children 4-9 years love puzzles and flash cards. If you are a teacher or a homeschooling mom, introducing this topic for the first time, I highly recommend you try this method.

Flash cards and matching games help children recognize the words and as you can see in this case, it helps them recognize both in Arabic as well as in English.

Of course, orally reciting the months is fantastic but it is also a good idea to help them to practice learning the spellings of the words. A simple way to do it is by laminating the flashcards and giving your child a dry erase marker to trace on the cards.

You can also use a sand board. If you don’t have one, simply place a tray with some sand and let your child use the cards to look and trace in the sand with their fingers!
